Easter Break Information 2022

Posted On: 2022-04-04

If you need on-campus housing anytime between Wednesday, April 13th, 2022 (after 7pm) and Monday, April 18th, 2022 you must request and be approved to stay on-campus. This includes international students and student teachers. If your request is denied, you will be contacted by the Office of Residence. If you do not receive a response, your request has been approved.

During scheduled university breaks, the residence halls/villages/apartments are officially closed and students must leave for Easter break by 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13th, 2022. Residence halls will reopen on Monday, April 18th, 2022 at 12:00 p.m.

Only those students who will be participating in SAINT MARY’S SPONSORED activities, traveling long distances or international students will be granted break housing unless specifically approved by the Office of Residence Life. A $35 per night fee may be added to a student account for remaining on campus for reasons other than those stated above.

Permission to remain on campus during breaks is not automatic, and those seeking approval must register with the Office of Residence Life by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12th, through this online form. Key card access will be shut off Wednesday, April 13th, 2022 after 7:00 p.m. if this form is not completed.

As a safety measure, Campus Safety routinely checks all units in the residence halls and apartments during periods when school is not in session. Occupancy of any campus housing during breaks without authorization may result in a fine and/or loss of campus housing.

Residence hall staff will check student rooms during break periods to ensure that no safety hazards exist or that the resident is in violation of university policy. If a staff member should encounter a resident residing in the residence halls without authorization, the resident may receive a fine and/or loss of campus housing.

Failure to complete this form or the break checkout form in eRezLife will result in an improper break checkout fine. Failure to remove garbage or unplug your refrigerator may also result in a fine from Residence Life.

Food service will not be available. The cafeteria will close at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13th, and the Cardinal Club will close at 5 p.m. on the same date. The cafeteria will reopen on Monday, April 18th, for dinner.

The Cardinal Co-op food pantry will be open during break from 8:00 am. until 4:30 p.m. for those staying on campus during break. It is located in the Vlazny Hall kitchen.
